  • Knitted with two colored yarn in traditional Estonian fair-isle style. The pattern is an ancient Estonian pattern depicting 8-point stars and crosses. Tightly knitted using 0-size needles and DK weight yarn. All the colored yarns are hand dyed, 100% wool from Estonia. They are perfect to block wind and wear in winter. Beautiful twisting ribbing is very elegant, like a bracelet around your wrist. The gloves are colorworked all the way to the fingertips, which makes them warmer than average thin one-layer gloves. The yarn being rather thin makes them very comfortable to wear and they fit like a second skin. Women's size.
